On behalf of the www.voteforJudges campaign, I want to thank those of you who used the www.voteforjudges.org website to learn about judges seeking retention and candidates seeking to fill judicial vacancies in the November 4, 2014 general election.  We will be publishing judicial evaluation results for candidates on the March 15, 2016 judicial ballot in Cook County.  General early voting in Cook County begins February 29, 2016. We are waiting on the results from the dozen bar associations which evaluate judicial candidates, as well as media endorsements.  We anticipate having these results and media endorsements by February 20, 2016.  By that time, you will be able to go to the Judicial Evaluations and Results tab for the election results.

For ongoing information about the administration of justice, please visit www.chicagoappleseed.org.

The Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice created the www.voteforjudges campaign to provide a nonpartisan effort aimed at judicial voter education.  The Committee to Elect Qualified Judges, a political action committee dedicated to educating voters about judicial elections, is proud to sponsor the www.voteforjudges.org campaign for the March 15, 2016 primary election.  When results are available, you will be able to go to the Judicial Evaluations and Results tab for the judicial evaluation results from 12 bar associations as well as endorsements presented by Chicago media, when available. Early voting in Cook County begins on February 29, 2016.

The integrity and independence of our judges depend upon an informed electorate who vote for judges on the basis of their impartiality and quality of their judging. Thank you for taking the time to find out about the women and men who make the decisions that affect all of us.
